About the volunteering opportunity

Relieving relatives with a care service for people with dementia in Stuttgart-Birkach

Accompanying a person with dementia at home demands a lot from relatives. The Birkach care group relieves them for a few hours and offers people with dementia entertainment and excitement in a small, familiar circle.

The guests spend a varied time together and are accompanied by a specialist and trained volunteers. We organise the care time creatively and orientate ourselves to the individual abilities and wishes of the guests.
